Surprise Surprise

Eric is a great guy! He came into some great Pirate cards and decided to send them my way.  Take a look!

I've mentioned a few times how I like Bowman Inception.  It's a great set to get some bigger prospect autos without having to break the bank like you would with Bowman Chrome.  Barrett Barnes was drafted a couple of years back late in the first round out of Texas Tech.  The Pirates are hoping the power progresses, but he has shown to be a good obp guy which is really preached on in Pirate system.
This is a rare oddball.  Steel City Collectibles gave these out.  Eric may have to comment below on what the stipulations were to receive this awesome card.  All I can tell you is that is awesome looking and numbered out of 500.

Thanks again Eric.  If anybody has any Twins around please give a shout out to Eric in the comments section.  He is a great trader!  This is the 3rd time he has sent me cards and it has been great each time.

Have a great weekend everybody.  I'm heading to the Pirates game tomorrow to watch them play the Padres.  Kind of a double bonus for me as Morgantown native and WVU alum Jedd Gyorko is off the DL and will be in the lineup.


  1. I received the Clemente at the NSCC this year by buying a box at steel city collectibles table if anyone was wondering

    1. Awesome! Cool oddball card. I like cards that have a good back story like that one.
